Today I spendt the day at home with Sol.
She has catched a cold. Poor girl.
Even tho she managed to play at a wonderful concert this evening.
Sol and edwin played with two brass ensebles at the music shool here in Oslo today.
It feels so good to see them love their music so much.

Tomorrow we'll be off to tante Elins 75th birthday. All she wanted as a gift was us giving her some music - so our family band will play at the party.
So looking forward to that.
As we had a nice and cozy day at home I managed to create some little projects too.

The above layout are made for this months challenge over at
Cocoa Daisy.
It was all about using a quote ....
I found this house with the quote on at Pintrest, and fell in love emmediately. The perfect "note to self" for me ;)

Thje other little project is just a sneak peek of my Step-by-step project coming up over at the
Cosmo Cricket blog
on saturday.
Make sure you stop by for some fun inspiration :)

Have a great weekend!

I can see spring :)

Today has been a wonderful day here in Oslo.
Finally spring seems to find it's way here up north.
The snow is all slippery and wet, and the sun has been bright and warm. I had my lunch outside my favorite local café, and it was so good to feel the sun on my face and hear the little birds sing :) :

Here are some of my MLS-projects for this month.
These papers are all so happy and bright - they all bring a smile on my face. :)

You can see more of my projects on the MLS blog.

Also make sure you join this months sketch challenge!

I'll show you my take on it later ;)

Scraporama, the paper show at Hellerud was a great happening this weekend.
I got to meet so many wonderful people - all in love with papercraft, scrapbooking, stamping and card making.
It was so good to meet you all!! :)

Now the "sweet heart" collection by 3ndypapir (my design)
is almost sold out!!!
Can't believe all the wonderful comments and all the love you all have given me for this collection.
Thank you!!! It really means a lot to me
Here are two little glimpses from my 3ndypapir stand.

Trine took this picture of me sitting in the middle of the crowd at my stand. Probably busy showing how to create some paper flowers, talking to somebody or selling my papers :)

"Håndlaga 2011" and a challenge :)


More snow in Oslo today.
This winter seems like it will never come to an end...
Still over 1 1/2 feet snow in my garden....

Now, well .... days are at least longer and lighter now.
Yes, I'm starting to long for spring...

Feels good to create some bright, spring-inspired cards :)
This card is for this weeks challenge over at
Håndlaga 2011 is a blog and a contest for all norwegian designed things and all things handmade.
You can nominate norwegian designed items
( like spesific papers from 3ndypapir for example ;) )
spesific handmade things (norwegian )
or (norwegian)blogs featuring handmade things.
Love this idea. How fun would that be to be featured on a blog / contest like this.

So please, if you love some of the 3ndypapir products - or my blog for that sake,
go ahead and nominate.
You can find all the details

Love to meet my crafty, super talented, fun, gorgeous, happy, warm hearted, lovely friends.
